On Friday I visited the exhibition 'Art Deco' in the Gemeente museum in The Hague. It's a must see for anyone who loves fashion and/or interior design.

I hardly ever promote an exhibition that I haven't visited yet, but in this case I dare to bet my life on it that it is good and that I will endorse it once seen anyway.
